| Density functional theories and self-energy approaches - R. W. Godby and P. Garc�a-Gonz�lez In this chapter, after a brief introduction to MBPT and Hedin�s GW approximation, we will summarise some peculiar aspects of the Kohn�Sham XC energy functional, showing that some of them can be illuminated using MBPT. Then, we will discuss how to obtain ground-state total energies from GW. Finally, we will present a way to combine techniques from many-body and density-functional theories within a generalised version of Kohn�Sham (KS) DFT...

| Density functional approach to the many-body problem - Robert van Leeuwen We give an overview of the fundamental concepts of density functional theory. We give a careful discussion of the several density functionals and their di�erentiability properties. We show that for nondegenerate ground states we can calculate the necessary functional derivatives by means of linear response theory, but that there are some di�erentiability problems for degenerate ground states. These problems can be overcome by extending the domains of the functionals... Keywords: Density Functional Theory Downloads: 22 | |

| The ABC of DFT - Kieron Burke and friends A very good book about DFT. It should be particularly useful for users, who wish to understand the fundamental theory in a little more depth, in order to make intelligent decisions about which calculations to run. It should also be useful for developers, in allowing new students and postdocs to teach themselves basic DFT any time, on their own.

| Influence of Sodium Loading on CO Adsorption over Faujasite Zeolite Supported Gold Monomers: a Density Functional Study The interaction of carbon monoxide with the gold monomer in two oxidation states 0 and +1 both in the gas phase and on an NaY zeolite support is studied using density functional theory (DFT).Three structures of the zeolite having different Na ion loading are considered.CO vibrational frequency shows a blue shift on going from the oxidation state 0 to +1.The CO binding energy values of 1.19 and 1.21 eV for the oxidation state 0 are higher than the corresponding values in the oxidation state +1.Th...
